    Yea. On iPhone...

    It's always been Candy Crush that pops up in the App Store as far as I know.

    Some days it's worse than others. I was pretty close to making a thread about this myself. There was about a week straight where getting on was unbearable because every single time I tried to click a thread or make a post, I'd be hijacked. Lol... If happened like ten times within a few minutes once.

    Hasn't been nearly as bad recently, but it still happens often.

    I'm beginning to wonder if the site hasn't been hacked.

    When did it start?

    I noticed it on my Android phone about 3-4 days ago. I just ran through the site again on my phone without issue, but like others said it's been random.

    I get the message my device is out of date.

    It happened to me months ago... It hasn't happened ever since ive got my new iphone. I just thought it was an advertising thing.

    "It" being that I would open up a thread and be directed to the apple store trying to get me to download an app.

    I think I first noticed it about a month or so ago.

    Maybe even longer than that.

    If it has been hacked, it's the Ravens.

    Hack their forums to get revenge.

    We may have have different issues here.

    I found this on the adtrack.king.com issue. It's been around a while:
    Remove adtrack.king.com Hijacker - MalwareFixes

    They claim it's malware in an app so I don't know if an ad from here is the cause. There is some info which might help.

    The Android pop-up looks like one that's ad-related. I'm still investigating.
